What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am always staying on top of what is current in my field and the latest products, services and trends. I attend advanced color and cutting classes on a regular basis.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
My haircolor prices are somewhat standard. Longer, thicker hair can sometimes be a little more in price because of the time involved and the extra product needed.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I come from a family of hairstylists and salon owners. I grew up in the salon and never imagined myself doing anything else.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Hair color, hilights, corrective coloring, hair cuts, hair styling, blow drys, Brazilian Blowout Keratin treatments.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently did a corrective color on a client that had previously black hair color and approx 3 inches of regrowth of her natural color. Another stylist had attempted to hilight, resulting in brassy hilights on her natural hair and discoloration on the previously colored areas. I restored her hair to a shiney natural auburn and had a very happy client. (Photo above).
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
"Make sure your stylist is experienced. Ask them specific questions about the services they offer and what products they use. Ask what you can realistically expect the outcome will be for your hair with the service you are receiving. Don't be afraid to ask questions and have a thorough consultation".
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Being a hair colorist is like being an artist. The difference is instead of painting a portrait that my clients will go home and hang on their wall, they actually wear it every day! Making sure each client is happy with the color and style I have created for them is of the utmost importance.
